Potential clients may fit into one of these descriptions:
- Tourism Project: Tourism projects can be for a municipality, community, or organization who wants a tour, event, activity created to engage individuals and groups, locals and tourists alike. The product can be for a specific location or topic.
- Community Engagement: If a group, city, organization is in search of a community engagement partner who values Black, POC, immigrant, LGBTQAI+, low mobility, and those across the age span, Nedra would be a good partner to lead and design this stage of any project.
- Place-keeping and Place-defining: Place-keeping and place-defining events are different from place-making events in that Place-keeping events, experiences, engagements are designed to celebrate the existing culture and community, and place-defining events are to provide ways to support, elevate, and push against gentrification. Both project types are designed with community members and with their interests and needs in mind.
- Research and Writing: Well- researched articles about Black, Indigenous, POC (BIPOC).
- Oral History: Allows for the history of the everyday person to be captured. The personal story is encapsulated in known history and questions are designed before-hand to bring out the personal story and lesser known history. This is a great way to if you are in search of a way to preserve family history and share it with the next generation.
- Family archive: Designed to support an individual or a family seeking to preserve personal and family stories or create an archive.
- Race, Equity and Inclusion: Race, Equity and Inclusion is a common phrase. Nedra designs unique experiences; conversation series, activities and history lessons, dinner series, book clubs are just a few examples of formats used to increase more awareness on issues surrounding race, equity, and inclusion.
- Asset Mapping: Want a deeper dive into your community's assets; including but not limited to local businesses, service groups, art and culture related businesses, artists, and groups, etc. that are lesser known
